Indigo Dye Workshop

July 9 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Let’s have a dye day! Dyers have been using Indigofera tinctoria to create blue dye for centuries. We will be using a modern recipe for this 100% naturally derived fermentation indigo vat. Participants will receive an instructional handout, a silk scarf, and a cotton swatch for dyeing. We will also delve into Shibori resist techniques on our cloth before dying. Additional ready-to-dye fabric will be available for purchase.

WHEN: 1 – 4 PM on July 9th, 2021

AGES: Ages 10 & up

COST: $55 per person (includes all materials).
